Matt Smith In Reach Of Sixth Pro Stock Motorcycle Title

POMONA, Calif. — The finishing touches are all that’s left of what Matt Smith hopes is his sixth Pro Stock Motorcycle world championship, a number that would tie him with Andrew Hines and Dave Schultz for the most in NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series history. But it’s not official yet, which means Smith knows the job isn’t quite done heading into this weekend at the 57th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals at legendary Auto Club Raceway in Pomona. That may be difficult considering Smith’s track record in Pomona, where he’s managed to win the race and clinch the world title on the same weekend three different times. “It’s huge to win the race and win the championship all in the same weekend,” Smith said. That’s driven him all year and with a pursuit of a sixth world championship nearly complete, Smith is eager to finish the job. “It would mean a lot to get a sixth title and be in the all-time club with Andrew and Dave,” Smith said.
